When I confessed to my EX’s questioning of my fidelity over a year ago, all she could say was “wow”. She seemed very taken aback by my answer. So today, when I was asked ‘why men cheat’ by a young lady during a Public Speaking event, I was initial hesitant to share the full conversation me and my EX had about her suspicion of my lack of loyalty.

“Can you tell me why all men cheat on loyal Women?” a curly haired PreMed student asked me today, during my public speak to a room full of 300 Women. My response to her question was,

“Males cheat on loyal women to boost their ego. A woman can be perfect for him. Beautiful, career minded, own money, cooks, does whatever he wants her to do in bed, loyal, intelligent, educated, faithful and…

With: Okwiri Oduor and Teju Cole

Time: Fri 19th September 2pm – 5pm

Not all narratives are equally memorable. How does a story go from something that is simply told to something that takes hold of the reader and won’t let go? Okwiri and Teju will work with twenty-five students to show how editing can help transform an ordinary story into something special.

Okwiri Oduor is the winner of the 2014 Caine Prize for her short story “My Father’s Head”. She is a 2014 MacDowell Colony fellow.

Women Who are Ambivalent about Women Against Women Against Feminism

One of the most interesting reads I’ve read in a long time! So cool and insiteful!

So...yeah.  Right now there’s a lot of talk about a tumblr called WomenAgainstFeminism.  It’s just pictures of some women holding up handwritten signs entitled “I don’t need feminism because...”  Some of the reasons they give for not needing feminism almost seem like a parody (“How the fuck am I suppose to open jars and lift heavy things without my husband?”) and some (“I don’t need to grow out my body hair to prove I’m equal to men”) just make me wonder where in the world they got their definition of feminism.

At first I considered starting my own “I Don’t Need _____ Because” tumblr with people holding equally baffling signs.  Signs like:

I don’t need books because YOU KNOW WHO WROTE BOOKS?  HITLER.  HITLER WROTE A BOOK.  NO THANK YOU, NAZIS.

I don’t need money BECAUSE I HAVE A CHECKBOOK, ASSHOLE.

I don’t need air because LOTS OF IT…

Such is the wish.
How can one want so much,
and yet, when it comes to a single tender touch,
the willing of all else matters not.
For to feel the caress upon my cheek, tenderly,
it is then only to this, my wish is sought.
All else matters naught.

Though I feel the thunder within my ears of mine heart beating
the pulse traverses to passions unto its own.
Another wash of tears bear down the river for mine is the ears that can only hear
a wish, a singular hope,
matching the rhythm of a thousand drums piercing mine very own soul.
What can it take, for what must be the toll…

and I wish upon the very voice singing within my pulse,
beating, flowing and pounding at my hopes
